Poison Ivy from the Batman Comics. I made a green dress and then pinned and sewed HUNDREDS of little fake ivy leaves all over it. It took a few evenings of movie watching to do it, but I loved it when it was done. Really comfy to wear too! My friend Julia went to the party as Puck Bunny in a Maple Leafs jersey. Too cute!
Fubar. This may just be something that only Canadians get, but there were a big hit.
This cute couple went for gory and looked great!
Office Space recently? He even got the mug and made a name tag!
MacGruber from the SNL skits. We couldn't find a khaki fishing vest, so I took a pair of men's khaki cargos from the thift store and made them into a vest (Thanks for the idea, Mom!) And, no, that is not his real hair. It a wig that I
Maybe we should have gotten Whiskey a wig too ;)
But he seemed happy just wearing his little bat costume.
Of course we had to get him in a picture with this Mistress of the Night!
Some of my friends' neighbours stopped by in matching outfits. They really could be sisters!
Of course there was LOTS of dancing.
And many attempts to remember the moves to Michael Jackson's Thriller.
This one's for you! haha
End of the night high five to the hostess with the mostest.
Thankfully with the way that Halloween was on a weekend, it meant that Saturday night was another party. This time I headed back down to the city for an 80s video dance party. I put a little forethought into my costume and opted out of wearing heels for fear of suffering while dancing all night. I took a pair of old flats that were on their way out the door and covered them in green fabric scraps from the dress and added a few ivy leaves for decoration.
I ran into another Poison Ivy there too!
A Clockwork Orange. Love the eye makeup!
What did you do for Halloween?
